Where to find "brake power booster"
Does anyone know where I can find one of these "brake power boosters"? Seems like they have been discontinued. They are similar to the in-line travel agent, except they don't have to be mounted to the frame. If anyone has a spare one in good working order that they'd like to sell, I'd be willing to buy it from you at a fair price (PM me). Thanks!

You DOUBLE posted , why not link them?
You're saying that thing in the pic just hangs out in the wind on your cable?
Looks like a hot mess. Lots of places for corrosion/dirt to get into. What is it exactly you're trying to accomplish or what's the problem?

I can't imagine why they've been discontinued.
This is one I've never seen. Interesting concept.

I love the rolling hills.

Plan B : fit a V brake compatible Road lever set..
I managed to snag a set just a few months ago. They still have some left AFAIK. I agree though, the better solution is V-brake compatible levers. In fact, it wouldn't be my Plan B, it would be the Plan A. I needed to run cross-levers which only come in short pull unless you $$$ out for the Paul Engineering dual pivot ones.
